In compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of Sierra College to make available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students. Beginning in Fall 2013, a cohort of all certificate-, degree-, and transfer-seeking first-time, full-time students were tracked over a three-year period. Their completion and transfer rates are listed below. These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at Sierra College nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period.
Based upon the cohort defined above, 31.76% attained a certificate, degree, or became ‘transfer-prepared’ during a three-year period from Fall 2013 to Spring 2016. Students who have completed 60 transferable units with a GPA of 2.0 or better are considered ‘transfer prepared’.
Based upon the cohort defined above, 12.81% transferred to another postsecondary institution prior to attaining a degree, certificate, or becoming ‘transfer prepared’ during a five semester period from Spring 2014 to Spring 2016.
